So I took a LONG time off from this blog b/c I’ve been completely immersed in work and wedding planning. Doing both sometimes felt like I had two and a half full time jobs. But soon I’m going to begin posting more here…beginning with pics of my wedding and all the little details that went into it. Here’s the first pic we got back. It was a perfect day (with the slight exception of massive humidity).
I’m in the midst of major wedding planning which includes but is not limited to lots of DIY projects, saving money wherever I can, and pretending that I’m trying to also get in shape for the big day (next June). Anyways…my whole thoughts at the moment seemed to be consumed by caterers, photographers, and drooling over Once Wed. Seeing as how I don’t have much to say regarding my house, I figured I’d at least show you the place where we are planning on getting married – my fiancee’s family’s farm outside Philadelphia.
Our wedding is at the family farm
near the barn
under the sycamore tree
…and beside the pond.
It’s going to be pretty. I just hope it doesn’t rain. Cross your fingers.
Me: Maybe this should be our wedding cake?
Him: Okay, but only if we get to build a moat and put a wizard in one of the towers.
(Because planning a wedding a stressful, and sometimes you just need a laugh. Go HERE to purchase your very own Disney Princess Castle Cake kit.)
You see Max, I adore your work! There are so many of your pictures in my “inspiration file” just for photography styling alone that it pains me that you live so far away. However, flying you in from Los Angeles is probably out of the question…so I thought I’d pen this lament in hopes that at least everyone on the west coast could see your brilliant work and hopefully fill your dance card with lots more work.
But just in case you happen to be in the Philadelphia area next June and would like to take a little visit to a farm and photograph a lovely couple, then okay fine. Far be it from me to tell you no. I mean…it only makes sense that it be you since I would just be comparing everyone else’s photos to yours and they’d never measure up. *sigh*
Okay…well in case anyone else out there isn’t as unfortunate as me to live so far away from the talented Max Wanger, then stop over and peruse his lovely images. Of course, you could also drop him a note telling him to move to Philadelphia as well. I mean…I wouldn’t mind.
I can’t even HANDLE the BEAUTY!! I mean…making all your invitations out of vintage hankies?! OMG…If I had more energy (and money) to start digging for vintage hankies, then I probably would. As it stands now, I’m probably going to have to let this idea go by the wayside, but it literally KILLS me to do it!!

Besides, if I used this as a Save the Date idea, how in the world would I top it for an invitation? Everything else after that would surely seem like a letdown. I just wish there was a way (that I knew of) to get the feeling of using a vintage hankie without having to collect 100 hankies. Hmm… if any of you have any thoughts on that, let me know! (Or if you have any great invitation ideas for DIY.)
I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time gathering photos from here and yon for my wedding…here are a few that stick out.
